A Beautiful Book



I have the distinct privilege to be part of an extraordinary book. The brain child of ZNE founder Chelise Stroud Hery, this book is a compilation of work from over 60 artists. The following quote, from the ZNE website, explains the inspiration behind this beautiful art book.

"In February of 2008, JoAnnA Pierotti, a founding member of the artist community known as ZNE, lost her mother suddenly and unexpectedly. In the week following, 68 artists from all over the world stepped forward. They provided artistic images and financial contributions in order to create an art volume which would express their sympathy, concern, and support.

The result is this extraordinary collection which celebrates motherhood and love, and honors loss and the healing process.

With an introduction by mixed media artist Chelise Stroud Hery, and inspirational quotes throughout ~ this book provides a diverse and heart filled collection of artwork created in various mediums."

The following image, entitled 'Memory,' is my contribution to the collection. I encourage you to visit the ZNE website and see the list of amazing artists who have contributed. There you can also purchase one of these lovely books.

Great job! I wonder the same thing as the post above...why don't you have your own book? Your work is distinct, I would know it 20 miles away!

CONGRATULATIONS Nancy!!! how cool to be featured in that book...but I have to say...you could have a book all to yourself (agree with the previous posts) your work is amazing and really makes people feel emotions....

I too could spot your work anywhere....

Hi Nancy, so great to hear your work will be featured in this book! The piece you contributed is so sensitive and beautiful. Also, I recieved your gorgeous paper bag album yesterday - it's even more exquisite in real life!! You have such a gift to be able to create such beautiful keepsakes. I reluctantly ;) passed it on to my mum and she's so pleased with it! I know she'll treasure it - you've got a new fan! Thanks Nancy, and I agree with everyone, I'd love to see a book full of your work!!

That is so cool! Congratulations. Also, what a poignant, wonderful idea for a book.

I agree with the others, I think it would be great if you had a book of all your work.

Now to toddle over and take a look at that site. Thanks.
